Synopses & Reviews
Examines the beliefs, values, politics, and social tolerance of evangelical college students today to determine whether religious subcultures can maintain distinctive identities and beliefs within modern social life.
Religious analysts have long predicted that American evangelicalism would crack under the pressure of secularization and modernity. Responding to such forecasts, this study examines whether religious subcultures can sustain distinctive identities.
Replicating James Davison Hunter's classic study Evangelicalism: The Coming Generation, this book examines the beliefs, values, attitudes, and tolerances of evangelical students today. The authors predict a more optimistic future, critiquing Hunter's assertions. Substantive yet accessible, this book will interest scholars and students in social sciences and religion as well as those interested in evangelicalism's future.
